Anne Hathaway recently apologized for switching her Valentino with Prada’s nipple dress at the last minute for the Oscars. The actress explained that she feared her gown, created by the famous fashion house that usually dresses her, was too similar to another actress’.

After the highly criticized look at the Oscars on Sunday night, Anne Hathaway felt the need of issuing a public apology via People magazine regarding her last-minute choice regarding her dress. The “Les Misérables” star admits that the ballerina pink gown she did wore, which is designed by Prada, wasn’t in the plans at the beginning. “It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear”, the actress shared with People magazine. “I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans”, she added.

Moreover, Hathaway does not think that the Prada she showed up in, dubbed “the nipple dress”, as the cuts in the upped side of the dress looked like poking nipples when sewn, was a bad choice. “I love the dress I did wear”, even though “it was a difficult last minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself.”

Apparently, the other actress Hathaway was referring to, the one wearing a similar dress, was her co-star Amanda Seyfried. A source speaking to Us Weekly claims that the two actresses exchanged photos of their gowns one night before the ceremony and Hathaway ditched the very similar Valentino creation. “I deeply regret any disappointment caused”, she said.
